When I am driving in 5th gear there is a slight whining that increases in pitch as i increase speed. I think I have always had this noise but I have been noticing it more recently. I used to listen to the sterio continuously now I am enjoying the sounds of the car more often.

whining is usually a sign of the trans it self going bad not the clutch
